Jesse James: 'Millions of Other Men' Cheat

ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Jesse James' past can't seem to stop rearing its ugly head when it comes to the affair that ended his marriage with Sandra Bullock.

In a recent interview with Men's Journal, James came out with guns blazing to defend his cheating on the Oscar-winning actress, which came out in the press last year.

"I never shied away from anything I did," James told Men's Journal. "I took full responsibility. I cheated on my wife. Guess what? So do millions of other men."

After news of his infidelity broke, James did not speak out right away. "People assumed I was a d--- because I didn't defend myself," he told the magazine.

James also was candid with Men's Journal in talking about when he entered rehab in March 2010 for childhood and anger management issues.

"I went in thinking, all these people in this place? They are really f--ked up," he told the magazine. "I figured out pretty fast I was the f--ked-up one. I realized I was addicted to anger. And it was going to be up to me to straighten my s--t out."

In an exclusive network television interview with ABC’s Nightline last week, a much more somber James talks about making a fresh start and moving past the affair that has continued to plague him.

"I need to come out of the shadows and regain what I do best," he told ABC News. "Just because I cheated on my wife and got busted for it, and it became a whole media s--tstorm, it doesn't mean that I'm not valuable. I'm sorry it happened. I'm sorry it went down the way it did, but I forgive myself and now I can move on."
